The Archangel has decided to go to Artemis which is controlled by the Eurasia arm of the Earth Forces.
But things don’t go well. The top officers of the Archangel are taken away to be questioned. Flay outs Kira as a Coordinator.
Then Nicol attacks Artemis using the special ability Blitz has: a mirage colloid.
Artemis is completely destroyed but the Archangel is able to get away.
I like Nicol. He is a really good supporting character. Yzak is such a bully so I never really warmed up to him.
